After more than a decade and a half . . . Our readers are FINALLY starting to understand how things work around here . . .
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS EPIC BLIND ITEM REPORT CALLING OUT ALLEGEDLY AMAZING FORGIVENESS BESTOWED UPON KANSAS CITY WORKERS!!!
To keep us all out of court and from getting smacked in the head . . . There are NO NAMES attached but the gossipy deets regarding a taxpayer funded institution deserve just a bit of consideration.
Caveat . . . Don't get it twisted . . . This post isn't an attack on the FD given that most KCMO stations are worse than a sewing circle and our hero first responders love this kinda hot talk more than anybody else.
Now, here's the word . . .
The Kansas City Can't Get Fired Department
The only way you can be fired from KCFD is if you don't show up to work and KCFD employees have become unfireable. Here are some examples.
KCFD Firefighter that ran a red light and killed 3 civilians on P19 allowed to return to work.
KCFD Firefighter keeps job after felony drug charges at Lake of the Ozarks.
KCFD Firefighter keeps job after pleading guilty to felony assault charges from brutally beating his female neighbor.
KCFD Firefighter/Paramedic returns to work after assaulting homeless man with his laptop who spit on him in Truman ER.
KCFD Firefighter returns to work after serving time in prison for federal drug charges in Utah
KCFD Captain allowed to keep job after having multiple DWI charges and license revoked.
Thank you KCFD, Local 42 and the city of KCMO for guaranteeing that KCFD employees can never be fired.
Speaking of and to better serve the public trust with valuable info . . .
In fact, they need people desperately . . . And not just their cousins and family members for a change.
Clearly there's job security even if tragic downsides like substance abuse and a MORE THAN LIKELY chance of divorce seem to come with the territory.
You decide . . .
